Gretsch Synchromatic 100 1952
A fine representation of a player's grade Gretsch Synchromatic 100 (6014) from around 1952. This Gretsch has been set up and it plays like butter, big projection and a nice low action.
This 16-inch archtop features a Spruce top and arched Laminated Maple back and sides. The three-piece Maple neck has a bound Rosewood fretboard with pearl block inlays. On the Headstock we find non original Grover tuners and script Gretsch logo. The original stairstep bridge and harp shaped tailpiece are missing.
One common issue with vintage Gretsch guitars is the deterioration of celluloid binding, and this Gretsch is no exception. The binding on the body and neck has been professionale redone.
The Synchromatic comes accompanied by a well-worn tweed case with purple lining.
